that would limit the nsa's ability to gather information. randall pinkston joins us at capitol hill. what happened in those nsa hearings today? >> well, tony, the hearing ended an hour ago after an unusual three and a half hours technique. the members of the house select committee on intelligence complimented the work of the national security agency which as you know are under fire since the revelation by former nsa analyst edward snowden that revealed documents that showed that they had been listen together phone conversation or scooping up the phone numbers of conversation of american citizens. the director of national intelligence said that the information was gathered legally, and the content is only available to a handful of people. >> everything that we do on this program is audited 100%. on the business records. 100%. the da data is kept separate frm all the other data we have. it's important to understand that the leaker did not have access to this data period. >> so randall, are these hearings setting the stage for the usa freedom act, and if so what would that legislation mean?

of the senate intelligence commitee, the democrat, diian feinstein has been a prominent supporter of the nsa, but yesterday, and maybe for the first time, she broke ranks and claimed she is totally opposed to spying on leaders of allies. she also said that the white house told her it would stop the practice. a senior official later said that isn't true, but added the administration is considering the move. katherine herridge is live with us right over here. in europe, they seem all of a sudden to be obsessed with this, hearings and people speaking out. katherine, what else has happened at this hearing? >> well, sheperd, so far really two major headlines from james clapper, the nation's intelligence chief. the first was clearly to make the case that these controversial nsa programs are justified, clapper testified a short time ago that 2500 people were killed by terrorists just this last month, and he used that as a sign that the threat is evolving and growing. let's listen. >> in just this last month, 2,336 people were killed, 1510 injured in pakistan, afghanistan, syria, iraq, and nigeria.

. the details come from n.s.a. documents leaked by edward snowden. now for more detail, we're joined by our correspondent here in the studio. he's worked he is extensively on the story. thank you for coming in. what's provoked the anger of these internet giants. >> what's going on here is that the n.s.a., natural security agency together with its british counter part, the government communications headquarters has tapped into fiber optic cables outside the united states that google and yahoo, two of the world's large evident email providers use to transmit data, so they are able to absorb, suck up, if you will, hundreds of millions of packets of data, emails, all times of communications. this is different from a legal program in the united states that's authorized under u.s. law where the government and n.s.a. can approach companies and compel them with a court order to hand over details about specific individuals in their emails. this is a much more in discriminate approach. >> it just looks like it's just spiraling out of control, the whole spying allegation. why do you think they feel th

there is a dangerous addiction to the remote warfare. lot nsa has been doing a avoiding putting troops on the ground and it always reminds me but war is so dangerous often it is perceived from cold hearted this and i think the worst american is to minimize the danger in damage that conflict does and one of those is the reliance on remote forms of technology to compensate our willingness to put troops on the ground. one of the only things that stops human beings from fighting is they have had a tough if you outsource to robots to create a precedent we can tell anybody anytime across the planet provided it meets us it could bounce back at some point. >> host: i see that. it a related question is clap conflicts in the past are relevant to the world you forsythe and what countries our best placed because of their experiences that they intend to it will translate to what comes next. with iraq or afghanistan it is hard to realize how good people have got and what they are doing. it is only in the realms of special forces. the capability not only of the ad agencies and a state department is unparalleled in
